CFPA's vision is a world where sexuality is expressed and enjoyed in freedom, equality, respect and love. Comprehensive Sexuality Education and advocacy are the main priorities of the organization. CFPA plans, implements and evaluates sexuality educational programs targeted to children and young people, professionals and parents, and publishes accurate information and educational material on issues of sexuality.
The Association as an advocate in the field of SRHR has contributed to the amendments of a number of laws including the abortion law, and is a very active member in a number of National Committees and consultative bodies in the country through which it influences national policies and strategies on SRHR issues.
The Association is working towards the creation of the first structure in Cyprus where specialized services will be provided to adults, who have experienced sexual abuse when they were children, and their family members or people of their supportive environment. The services will include psychological support and therapy, evaluation, legal counselling, social support, and counselling on matters of sexual and or reproductive health.
